Earthquake Shakes

This Investigation Set is designed for students to explore the characteristics of earthquakes and how to prepare for them. In this set, students will learn how scientists determine an earthquake’s location and how they use this information to predict the strength of an earthquake. As students progress through this set, they will design and build model structures and test their abilities to withstand an earthquake, before finally learning best practices to individually prepare for natural disasters.
